This year’s event will increase the number of Tri Star 2 athletes racing per region with three boys and three girls being able to compete.
The same number of athletes will compete in the Tri Star 3 category, creating a team of 12 athletes in total.
The 2013 event will not include a youth category following recommendations in the 2011 British Triathlon Competition Review; however, Eton Dorney will also host an elite youth and junior race, which will be included in the 2013 British Triathlon Youth and Junior Super Series.
